Summary

Summary

Where did all these monsters come from?
The closet, the basement, under the bed, the outhouse, even the school furnace room! But mostly, they came from a healthy imagination, just like yours!
Using a patented system of made-up facts and educated guesses, Everything I Know About Monsters reveals all the gory details about creatures of creepiness: what they eat (dirty socks), what's in their brains (not much), and how to scare them out of the basement (stand at the top of the stairs, bang pots and pans together, and yell very loudly).
So turn on all the lights in the house and get comfortable. You're about to learn so much about monsters, it's scary!

Publisher's Weekly Review

The Many-Mouthed Midnight Muncher and the Big Butted Bug Eyed Terrible Tongue Twister are among the horrible creatures pictured and explained in Everything I Know About Monsters by Tom Lichtenheld. Illustrated in campy cartoon style, the sequel to Everything I Know About Pirates contains a tongue-in-cheek Monster Avoidance Chart, a monster brain analysis and the truth about Big Foot (he s a Boy Scout gone bad).

School Library Journal Review

Gr 1-4-The author of Everything I Know about Pirates (S & S, 2000) returns to tackle another popular topic. Told from the point of view of a boy whose mother calls him "one of the best story-maker-uppers ever," this guidebook offers descriptions of the various types of monsters, from the common "Under-the-Bed" types to the more dangerous school monsters to "Closet Monsters" that rip your clothes during the night and the outdoor variety such as "Big Foot." A "Handy Monster Avoidance Chart" answers the question, "How much light does it take to make a monster disappear?" and gives tips ranging from opening the bedroom door "just a crack" for minor scares to "turning on every light in the room and having a grown-up look under your bed," guaranteed to get rid of any creature. Using the "Official Mad Scientist Monster Maker," youngsters will have lots of fun creating names for their own fiends and ogres. Lichtenheld's cartoons, rendered in "ink, colored pencil, crayon, gouache, watercolor, and raspberry PEZR," feature lots of dialogue bubbles and humorous hidden touches. With irreverent humor and lots of slapstick, this silly guide is sure to be a hit with kids.-Kathleen Kelly MacMillan, Maryland School for the Deaf, Columbia (c) Copyright 2010.
